If you aren't familiar with containers, first read this intro.
We currently have the Podman container engine installed. If you would like to use other container engines like LXC or Apptainer, make a feature request.
Check out the Podman tutorial on their website to get started. You can also use the graphical web interface at exoportal.
Take a look at Distrobox if you would like an easier, automated way to create and manage containers.
